Minerals, and clay in particular, are the basic raw material for all sectors of the industry. A secure long-term supply is essential. For the sectors which extract their own clay, supply is dependent on a favourable minerals planning regime both nationally and locally. The BCC works in close cooperation with other industries where appropriate in this controversial and specialist area to ensure that the industry’s interest and requirements are fully recognized in policy, legislation and guidance at every level.
As demand for minerals world-wide increases and the drive towards resource efficiency intensifies, European intervention in policy determination can reasonably be expected.
The ceramics sector is a relatively small part of the total UK minerals industry, but its requirements are sector specific and differ in many ways from those of other more prominent minerals. It is therefore important that the sector differentiates itself from others and that its voice is clearly heard. For further information contact Lauren Darby
